MY SUCCESS STORY

My name is Grace Syokau Mutua, I am 24 years. I come from Machakos County, Mwala subcounty, Kangii village from a family of five children and am the first born.

I was enrolled to the scholarship programme in the year 2009 when I was a form one in the third term due to lack of school fee and with this, managed until I did my Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education. Currently am working.

I got to know NCCK through a friend of my mother whereby I applied and later chosen as one of their beneficiaries. Before I got to know the programme I had issues with paying my high school fee and hence on and off I could be sent out of school for fee but until then after getting into programme I was able to settle well for my studies. My attitude towards the project was and it is positive since it helped me achieve.

Being I beneficiary the programme has really impacted positively in my life and have grown spiritually. This is as a result of retreats we attend through the programme. Through retreats we able to come together and interact get to know one another and learn. In school my performance improved and at home I became source of inspiration.

My dreams are to become a better person each and every day and help the poor. The biggest challenge is the small salary I get in my current employment but am planning to start my own business and investments to cater for that.

Am so much grateful to NCCK,may God bless whole fraternity abundantly.
